Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by. My name is Gloria Sun (they/them), and I am a queer Asian-American and Christian.
I have been running this blog since my senior year of high school. I recently graduated from a program of Architecture and Pre-Medicine at Wellesley College (’19-20), and I am now a young professional based in the Boston area.
Over the years, this blog has become a place for me to embrace all intersections of my identity, to explore my creativity and thought life, and to break down the stigma of living with different mental health challenges.
I have a deep desire to see social and environmental justice, which informs my activist work and my lifestyle of simplicity.
As you might imagine from the name of my platform, I was a musician in my former life. I am a (classically trained) violinist, with a taste for music from all places and all times. In addition, I have received musical training in piano, choir/voice, flute, viola, and erhu, and I am now teaching myself some basic guitar. I have also had some experience with conducting, composing, arranging, and improvising. More recently, I have been worshipping with my church and jamming with friends.
A couple fun facts about me: I am left-handed, and I can lick my elbow. My personality type is INFJ, 4-5-1, and my love language is quality time!
I invite you to journey with me in my Requiem.
- (Especially in the Roman Catholic Church) a Mass for the repose of the souls of the dead.
- A musical composition setting parts of a requiem Mass, or of a similar character.
- An act or token of remembrance.
Middle English, from Latin (first word of the introit of the requiem mass), accusative of requies rest, from re- + quies quiet, rest.
From the Oxford and Merriam-Webster dictionaries.
